Major League Baseball’s all-time hits king, Pete Rose made a rare-on-the-field appearance Saturday before a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his record-setting hit number 4,192 at Cinergy Field.

Pete Rose stood at first base and tipped his cap to the screaming crowd in his native Cincinnati.
